18 Jun What we hear affects us
Through the ages, people have searched for a cure for ageing. The rumours of just what exactly the fountain of youth could be and where you can find it are prolific. Yet the Word of God simply gives this answer:
Proverbs 4:10 (NKJV)
10 Hear, my son, and receive my sayings,
And the years of your life will be many.
When we hear, receive and apply God’s principles in our lives, the stage is set for a long and productive life. The Word of God contains everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). Those who are planted in His truths are like trees that remain fresh and vibrant to old age (Psalm 92).
Note the two actions that go hand in hand: hearing and receiving. Hearing God’s word is not enough in itself. We need to receive His truth. Embrace it. Absorb it. Let it become part of the very fibre of our beings.
THEN the years of our lives will be many. And not just many, but full of life!
Life is much simpler when we live according to God’s word. Let’s take it that one step further and not just hear it, but also receive it in our hearts and apply it in every aspect of our lives.
